User has been using Road runner cable modem and Cisco Client VPN, happily for 1 1/2 years. 2 months ago the speed suddenly slowed down, to the point she would rather dial in using a phone line connection. Cable Modem and Linksys router have been replaced.
User went to friends's house who uses SBC DSL and VPN worked great.
windows xp SP1
Linksys BEFSR41 (also tested connecting directly into the cable modem and bypassing Linksys)
Mcafee 4.5.1 sp1 - up to date
Road runner vendor claims nothing changed on their end and speed is good.
IE6 sp1 - works great when NOT connected to the VPN.
added dns/wins servers.
I have uninstalled/reinstalled VPN software.
Any help would be great!
